    So for the closure in July is that only for the building of the cars or the shipping too? And what are the dates of the closure again. I'm guessing if your build is built before the shutdown but not shipped you could still get delayed? Thanks!

    Must have missed the July closure comments, but would assume it is for retooling for 16 models. Should not stop shipping if that is he reason for shutdown

    Ya it's shutdown every year for retooling and updates. I got caught up in it when I ordered my Magnum. Just not sure what 2 weeks they are. So shipping of built cars will still continue? That's good news!

    My guess would be yes on shipping, but don't know for sure. I will check and see what a couple other major auto manufacturers do during their shutdown for retooling. Different comps, but usually they all follow industry standards.

    Ya I can't see it all shutting down. Especially when they have so many orders stacked up like they do.

    Hey there guys Brampton Builder and his coworkers need a summer vacation, just like the rest of us. May be two weeks vacation shutdown, retooling and preventative maintenance. Hoping for the paint booths/shop gets a major scrub down and cleaning

    Didn't say they don't deserve it. Just wondering if they also shut down the shipping of the built vehicles too.

    The July shutdown is only 1 week this year. It's out summer holidays July 13 - 19 . Model changeover to 2016 doesn't happen till sept 21. Also if your car is built and in the shipping yard the company who ships the cars continues to ship even when the plant is on holidays.

    Next holiday for the plant is our May 2-4 or Victoria Day 4 day long weekend may 15 - 18. They may ask for voluntary prod one of those days but as of now the plant is closed for 4 days that weekend.

    We don't take frustrations out on customers cars that would be employment suicide. We all know what these cars cost and want to build the best car possible.
